British model and actress Elizabeth Hurley is engaged to retired Australian cricketer Shane Warne, the couple confirmed via Twitter.

Hurley was photographed by British newspapers wearing an engagement ring on Saturday at the Dunhill Links Championship golf tournament in Scotland, in which Warne was participating.

Hurley, 46 and Warne, 42, thanked well-wishers on Saturday via Twitter and Warne tweeted on Sunday he proposed privately and it was very romantic.

The couple have been quietly dating since late 2010, after Hurley separated from her husband of four years, Indian textile businessman Arun Nayar. They divorced in June.

The Gossip Girl actress famously dated British actor Hugh Grant for more than 10 years, and also has a son from a previous relationship with film producer Steve Bing.

Warne, a former international cricket star and specialist spin bowler, is divorced and has three children.
